Nashville Downspout Drainage

The surface area of your roof can be huge and the water that comes out of your downspouts will exit the downspout with force and volume. What happens next? The water first impacts the ground below the downspout and gravity combines with the force of water to disperse the water. If the water gets against the solid surface of a wall it can then ride down the wall and find an entry into your home, crawlspace, or basement. We want the water to go to a place where it can safely be let out of a drainage pipe.

This image shows a downspout that presently drains against the side of someone's home. The water follows gravity along the foundation to the next lower area. This pipe should be connected to a drain pipe and the water allowed to drain somewhere away from the home.
